Promotion Contenders

The Championship is back and this is a particularly intriguing season with some big clubs entering the fray. Sunderland will grace English footballs second tier this term after suffering relegation from the Premier League last season but won’t be as heavily backed for an immediate return like their rivals Newcastle United were last season. The other teams who join them in the Championship are Hull City and Middlesbrough. Looking at the the three of them you have to fancy Boro to finish the highest out of them. Garry Monk is now the manager there. He impressed last season by turning a poor Leeds United team into play-off challengers.

Their loss is Boro’s gain though and looking at their squad they are best suited to do well in the Championship. Looking at the bookies odds they have Aston Villa as favourites for promotion as short as just 2/1. They spent a fortune last year but massively underachieved finishing in 13th. Owner Tony Xia isn’t changing his policy though, they have made arguably the biggest profile signing of the summer in the form of John Terry from Chelsea. Sheffield Wednesday will be there or thereabouts yet again but one dark horse to keep an eye on will be Wolves. They are spending some serious cash, smashing their transfer record to secure the services of Ruben Neves from FC Porto for £16m.

Relegation Threatened

At the other end it looks as unpredictable as ever, but the bookmakers are tipping Burton Albion, Bolton Wanderers and Barnsley to struggle. Burton are undoubtedly the smallest club in the division but in Nigel Clough they have a manager who knows how to survive in the Championship so do not expect them to be whipping boys. He did brilliantly last season to keep them in the division but you have to wonder whether it will be a case of second season syndrome. The promoted Bolton Wanderers haven’t made any noticeable signings that would strike you as Championship proven. Barnsley are quite unfortunate in the fact that it seems every time they put a decent squad together they get raided by the bigger teams and have to start all over again.

The Championship is one of the most exciting leagues in world football and it pretty much guarantees entertainment. There’s so many big clubs who’ve fallen into it and the competitive nature of the division means anyone can beat anyone.
